Bioindication of air pollution determined by photosynthetic pigment analysis of Norway spruce needles (Picea abies (L.) Karst.)



Bioindication of air pollution determined by photosynthetic pigment analysis of Norway spruce needles (Picea abies (L.) Karst.)



Zbornik Gozdarstva in Lesartva ( 36): 79-105



Contents of chlorophylls a, b, and a+b, and total carotenoids were determined in current-year and 1-yr-old needles collected in autumn 1988 and 1989 from Norway spruce (Picea abies) trees on the 16x16-km bioindication grid in Slovenia. Samples were also collected from selected sites near 2 major pollution sources. Pigment concentrations were only slightly lower than normal in needles collected near major emission sources.
